When it comes to Michelle Obama's workouts, she only plays the hits! Over the weekend, the former First Lady shared the go-to songs she listens to when she's working on her fitness.

"It's about that time when New Year's goals and resolutions get just a bit harder to stick to. To offer a little inspiration, I want to share my go-to 2020 #WorkoutPlaylist with all of you," she wrote on social media. "These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What's on your playlist? #IAmBecoming #SelfcareSunday."

So what songs does Mrs.Obama listen to turn up in the gym? Well, she listens to a little gospel — "A God Like You" by Kirk Franklin — loads of hip-hop — "Hussle & Motivate" by Nipsey Hussle, "Apesh*t" by The Carters — some R&B — "Honesty" by Pink Sweat$, "Show Me Love" by Alicia Keys ft. Miguel — Pop, Afrobeats and more. (And as she noted, she only clean version of all of her tracks.)

Michelle additionally shared a list of songs she listens to for the "cool down" portion of her workout.
